In prison for advocating for women’s rights.

Yasaman Aryani, an actor who loves climbing mountains, dared to defy Iran’s forced veiling laws in Iran. With her hair boldly uncovered, she handed out white flowers to women passengers. A video of her brave act of defiance went viral in March 2019, prompting Iran’s authorities to arrest her. Now Yasaman has been sentenced to a shocking 16-year prison term – all because she believes women should have the freedom to choose what they wear.

Take Action: Tell Iran to free Yasaman now.
